About this issue 

It is my pleasure to re-introduce 
Old Times to the Upper Canada 
College community. Upper Canada 
College is fortunate to have such a 
vibrant association with its students, 
faculty, parents, Old Boys and their 
families and friends of the College. As 
an Old Boy (Class of '71 ), a volunteer, 
a parent with two sons at the College, 
and now a member of staff, I have a 
unique opportunity to provide you 
with a window on College life. 

Communication about what is 
happening in the UCC community is 
essential and Old Times will continue 
to be one of the ways in which the 
College tells its story to the community. 
While Old Times will present interesting 
and thought provoking articles on 
aspects of the College's past, it will 
also communicate what drives the 
College's strategic agenda. Old Times 
will look to the past and feature articles 
and stories of interest to our readers and 
seek to define the relevance of these 
features to the contemporary world of 
UCC students, faculty and staff, parents, 
Old Boys and friends of the College. 

Our lead article is a commentary by 
the Principal on UCC's Strategic Plan. 
The Plan paints an exciting, innovative 
and compelling vision for the UCC 
of today and the future. From my 
experience over the past year, I am 
deeply impressed with the academic 
programs and extracurricular 
activities that the students embrace 

with such enthusiasm and vigour. 
In this issue, Doug Blakey explains 
the fundamental aspects of UCC's 
strategic plan and talks about how 
we are setting out expectations for 
the future of the College. 

The College provides a dynamic and 
exciting environment for the men and 
women who teach and work at UCC, 
and future issues of Old Times will also 
provide an opportunity to introduce 
new teachers and staff to the College 
community and to pay our respects 
to those who have left. Class Notes 
and our Of Interest sections have been 
maintained and updated by the 
thoughtful and diligent work of Rene 
Kiihn and Campbell Parsons. Many 
members of the UCC family have 
commented that these features are 
integral to staying connected to the 
College. In future editions, we will 
also be reporting on the variety 
of exciting activities held by the 
Association, including Association 
Day, Founder's Dinner, Grandparents 
Day at the Prep, as well as Branch 
receptions and Class Reunions. 

I hope you will find this issue interesting 
and informative, and that you will 
continue to let us know what you 
would like to see in our future issues.

ost successful 
regardless of 
their service or 
product, have 
a few common 
characteristics. One of the most 
integral is the organization's ability 
to develop a compelling vision for 
its future and to build, in its various 
constituencies, a deep sense of 
commitment to that vision. UCC's 
Strategic Plan paints an exciting 
and innovative vision for the UCC 
of today and the future. 

In the mid-eighties, Upper 
Canada College underwent an 
exhaustive thought process about 
what it does and how it should be 
done in the future. This process, 

which was lead by a Faculty 
Steering Committee, then a Board 
Committee, culminated in the 
creation of The Statement of the 
Aims and Objectives of Upper 
Canada College. The Board of 
Governors unanimously approved 
this document in 1990, then 
communicated it to the UCC 
community in 1991 through the 
Old Times. This document was 
the first step to establishing the 
College's mission and principal 
goals and voicing them as clearly as 
possible to all College stakeholders. 

In 1988, using The Aims and 
Objectives document as the context 
for further planning, the school 
started the process of writing its own 
Strategic Plan. This plan would 

describe the very important 
processes of seeing how well UCC 
has implemented the objectives 
laid out in The Aims and Objectives 
document, and would set 
expectations for the future, 
including a timetable for achieving 
those goals. Three years ago, 
Principal Doug Blakey produced 
UCC 2001 - The Implementation 
of the Aims and Objectives of Upper 
Canada College Over the Next Five 
Years, commonly referred to as the 
Strategic Plan. In late 1998 and 
early 1999, a series of roundtable 
discussions were held with faculty 
and staff to explore progress against 
the plan. During this period the 
Strategic Plan has served as the 
blueprint for the design and 

Summer 2 o o o 

implementation of programs, 
facilities and fundraising initiatives. 
Today, it continues to serve as a guide 
for the principal, senior management 
and the Board for strategic decision- 
making at the College. In January 
2000, the Board of Governors 
endorsed a communications strategy 
to disseminate the plan to all of the 
College's stakeholders. 

UCC's Strategic Plan is a work 
in progress, and one which is being 
implemented against a backdrop 
of events, some of which cannot 
be foreseen. However, the plan 
has evolved from a deep and careful 
consideration of what the College 
must do if it is to fully achieve 
its mission. 

The following is a commentary 
by Principal Doug Blakey on the 
implementation of the Strategic Plan 
and his thoughts on the vision and 
its implications to the contemporary 
educational experience at UCC. 


When UCC was established in 1829, 
its principal goal, as envisaged by 
the founder Sir John Colborne, 
was to provide a liberal course of 
instruction to young men who would 
prove themselves to be useful to 
the colony. The first principal, 
Joseph Harris, declared that UCC 
represented an enlightened regard 
for the public good. 

Generally, a liberal education 
provides a balanced program and 
involves concurrent study of a broad 
range of traditional disciplines - 
English, a second language, the 
humanities, experimental sciences, 
mathematics and the arts. Included 

Upper Canada College 


■ pper Canada College is an independent school, which provides 
boys with stimulating academic and co-curricular programs, 
grounded in the liberal arts tradition. The College will provide 
programs to develop their creativity and insight, as well as their ability 
to establish a strong sense of personal identity, a broad knowledge base, 
clear values and goals, and the passion to learn. UCC will strive to 
educate young men, from around the world, to be capable of both doing 
good and doing well as they live, work and play in a world that demands 
tolerance, flexibility, communication, personal resilience and expertise. 

in the program is participation in 
a variety of extracurricular activities, 
including athletic, creative and 
service to society. This is a traditional 
mind, body, and spirit curriculum 
with particular emphasis on balance 
and concurrency. The modern liberal 
education is infused throughout 
with an international perspective, 
the creativity curriculum, current 
pedagogical approaches and the use 
of technology where it is thought 
to enhance the learning process. 


• We will educate boys to become 
good men 

• Through a challenging liberal arts 
program, we will educate our boys 
to succeed in the 21st Century 

• We will seek to admit to UCC a 
diverse group of boys who are 
capable of benefiting from and 
contributing toward the UCC 

• We will ensure continuing 
leadership in the field of 

• We will continue to create a physical 
environment that supports UCC's 

For a long time, UCC has been 
dedicated to providing a liberal 
arts education. With the adoption 
of the IB Diploma program for a 
student's final two years, we have 
re-committed ourselves to this 
educational program. What is a 
fundamental change for us is that 
students can no longer select from 
one or two of the traditional 
disciplines to specialize with a 
narrow perspective. We are now 
ensuring balance and concurrency 
of study. We are also working 
toward balance in the extracurricular 
program so that students cannot 
shy away from extracurricular 
participation or from any of the 
three important components: 
athletics, creativity and service. 
They must spend some time in 
all three areas in order to gain 
the International Baccalaureate 

The IB provides the currency 
which a truly modern education 
requires. There is a great risk in 
the back-to-basics movement that 
content will be taught at the expense 
of intellectual capacity. Relevance 

Old Times 

is more than just jumping on the 
latest trend. The world is evolving 
too quickly to merely teach 
information. Learning how to learn 
is as important as learning the 
various disciplines. These are the 
reasons why we believe the IB fits 
so well with a traditional UCC 
education: it offers a balanced, 
rigorous education, teaches critical 
thinking, encourages good 
citizenship, and gives the students 
strong communication skills so 
they can express themselves. 


The academic part of the IB 
program is rich in rigour, critical 
thinking and the mastery of the 
traditional disciplines of a liberal 
education. At UCC it is very 
important to ensure that our 
strong commitment to the arts 
continues but, more broadly, to 
expand creative endeavours in 
all domains. 

We look on the combination of 
the International Baccalaureate 
and the Creativity curriculum as 
an educational program of amazing 
dynamism. Our graduates will 
not only leave the College with 
disciplined and critical minds, but 
also will be imaginative thinkers 
prepared to take sensible risks. An 
important part of the work being 
done in understanding creativity 
and the cultivation of creative 
behaviour in students is the 
business of instilling intellectual 
courage. If you can convince 
someone to have the courage to 
think for himself, you have armed 
him with one of the most powerful 

tools available. Critical, independent 
thought goes hand-in-hand with 
imagination and innovation. 

Being a critical thinker requires 
a huge degree of courage because 
it means rejecting generalities and 
going against the accepted wisdom 
of the day. For instance, I think 
one of the strengths of the College 
is that we accept, and even welcome, 
the dissenting voice. I have no 
doubt that it takes a good deal of 
courage to write a piece in the Blue 
Page when you know that many of 
your friends or teachers may find 
your opinions difficult to accept. 
What goes with teaching young 
men to think for themselves is the 
requirement that we teach them 
about sensible risk-taking and to 
encourage them to be prepared to 
make mistakes without fearing 
penalty - there is a tendency in 
schools to be unforgiving about 

Through the work of our 
teachers, we are trying to increase 
the stimulus and opportunity for 
creativity to occur in all subjects, 
not just the arts. Playfulness is 
an important element of the 
program, as is creativity. But 
perseverance is also critical; 
therefore, we are trying to develop 
in the boys the fortitude and 
determination to overcome 
obstacles and resistance. We are 
trying to develop, in each student, 
an appreciation of his own progress 
by asking him to keep a tangible 
record of his achievement in 
portfolios of work maintained 
over his time at UCC. Students 
must also have opportunities to 
appreciate the work of others, so 
we encourage exhibitions, displays 
and performance and help to 
develop the sense of audience. 
Creativity often occurs during the 

integration of varied experiences, 
which can be stimulated through 
collaboration and team work and 
is very inspiring and exciting. 


Sports have always been central 
to the life of the College and will 
continue to be so. For example, we 
continue to spend time revamping 
our intramural sports program 
and for our senior boys, the IB 
calls for participation in sports. 
It is impossible to achieve the IB 
Diploma without involvement 
in sports. 

In a much broader sense, sports 
will retain the important place they 
have always held at the school. 
Playing team sports cultivates 
cooperation, responsibility to 
others, a sense of pride and self- 
discipline, all of which must be 
encouraged. Many more sports are 
played now than even a few years 
ago, both at the first team and 
intramural levels. An expanding 
intramural program also provides 
greater opportunity for all boys to 
participate at a variety of levels. 

Extracurricular opportunities 
in fitness and sports are essential 
to the development of the talents 
of the individual. It brings me 
back to the notion of balance in a 
modern liberal education. There 
has been a gradual shift in recent 
years toward a holistic approach 
to mental and physical health 
of the individual. We want our 
students to learn to make healthy 
lifestyle decisions and one of the 
ways of doing that is through 
an active sports program that 
promotes fitness. 

Summer 2000 


Our prime responsibility is to prepare our boys 
to do good and do well. 

We honour achievement among all members of 
the UCC community. 

o^> We act in what we believe is in the best interests 
of our students. 

We are a "community of learners" who believe 
in continual improvement. 

We value and celebrate being a school for boys. 

c^> We believe that diversity of our school population 
strengthens the UCC experience for everyone. 

We believe that positive relationships are 
characterized by honesty, trust, respect and 
a sense of humour. 

We believe that our employees are our most 
important resource. 

<^+*> We value harmony and strive to create a working 
environment characterized by trust, loyalty, 
openness and mutual respect. 


People are increasingly aware of 
the importance of education in 
preparing our young people for an 
uncertain future. I believe UCC 
has a responsibility - more now 
than any time in our past - to use 
its substantial resources to provide 
leadership in education. We are 
contributing to the ongoing 
improvement of the International 
Baccalaureate Program, the 
International Coalition of Boys 
Schools, the Canadian Association 
of Independent Schools and the 
Canadian Educational Standards 
Institute. Individual UCC teachers 
are providing leadership in many 
ways within numerous professional 
organizations. We are breaking 
new ground in Canada with 
Horizons, which is designed to 
assist in the education of less 
privileged students. We have done 

a lot of work recently with our 
summer programs to set up new 
and innovative activities that 
cannot easily be accomplished 
during the regular school year. 
In the traditional model of 
philanthropy, those who have are 
obliged to give some of it away to 
those who do not. If that were all 
we were pursuing toward fulfilling 
our obligations as a privileged 
institution, I think we would be 
content to offer financial aid and 
do no more. What Horizons provides 
us with is the chance to offer some 
unique opportunities to some 
special students while, at the same 
time, offering new challenges to 
our own students and faculty. 
There are some very bright 
students out there who are, to 
be somewhat dramatic, at risk 
of jeopardizing their academic 
futures, and therefore their future 
careers, by making some bad 
choices early in their schooling. 
Think about that bright student 
who, during the years before 

entering high school, out of 
boredom or frustration 
or some sort of discontent, starts 
closing doors on future school 
opportunities. Once those doors 
are closed it's almost impossible 
to reopen them. We think that 
the Horizons project can bring 
these bright kids to the College 
over the summer and help them 
to keep their sights set high. We 
can help them bridge that difficult 
time through junior high when 
enthusiasm for academics can 
wane with long term and 
devastating results. 

From our side, the benefits would 
be considerable. We see our senior 
students becoming mentors and 
assistants and our faculty teaching 
a new group of students to meet an 
entirely new set of needs. 

We have very talented and 
dedicated people at UCC and there 
are a lot of other ways that UCC 
can and needs to provide leadership 
in education and share what it has 
developed and learned with the 

Old Times 

wider educational community. 
To be a leader in education requires 
substantial resources and facilities 
- just ask the folks at the University 
of Toronto, Queen's and Harvard 
about that. I hope that the UCC 
community will support the need 
for UCC to work more vigorously 
than ever to provide leadership in 
education - if we can't muster the 
necessary support among those who 
believe in us, it just won't happen. 


Upper Canada College exists for 
the public good and is committed 
to doing its part for the community. 
We are in an extraordinarily privileged 
position and the Strategic Plan has 
a good deal to say about what we 
owe in return. The ideals of the 
IB fit with the founding vision of 
the College, namely to produce 
graduates who will serve their 
community. Our students find 
themselves doing remarkable work 
for others - everything from working 
in food banks to serving overseas. 

If we expect our students to serve 
their community, then UCC must 
take a leadership role and set an 
example. On a very small scale, it 
means making sure that we make 
our facilities available for such things 
as the Terry Fox Run or the Harry 
Jerome Awards. On a larger scale, it 
means making sure that access to the 
College and the programs it offers 
are not beyond the reach of the 
promising student who lacks the 
financial resources. We are providing 
over $950,000 every year in financial 

aid and we are committed in the 
Strategic Plan to tripling that 
amount over the next five years. If 
there are students out there who 
would thrive at the College, and 
from whom the school 
would benefit, they 
should be able to attend 

The Strategic Plan 
calls for us to have the 
school population 
mirror as best we 
can the Canadian 
population and to 
promote cultural 
diversity here at the 
College. This doesn't 
simply mean using financial 
aid to attract those who cannot 
afford to come to the College. It 
means actively seeking students 
from non-traditional cultural 
backgrounds. This is an astonishingly 
well-to-do city and there are lots of 
boys out there who would benefit 
from the education we have to 
offer and who have the financial 
resources to come here. But for a 
variety of reasons many of these 
boys do not come - yet another set 
of barriers we have to bring down. 
The global perspective that we are 
eager to cultivate does not come 
simply from the international 
students in the boarding houses. 
It will also come from making sure 
we have the broadest possible 
representation from all those groups 
that make Canada what it is. 

he College's facilities 
will continue to be 

Even if our program were not 
evolving as quickly as it is, there 
would still be a need to keep our 
facilities up to date. The Renaissance 

XXI project was an ambitious step 
forward in modernizing facilities 
at the Prep and at the Upper School. 
The past few years have seen the 
College complete the next 
major step which includes 
the new Elizabeth Lee 
Primary Wing at the 
Prep school, the 
Creativity Centre and 
Student Centre, as 
well as the start of an 
endowment program 
to support our 
scholarships, and 
Horizons. All these 
initiatives have been 
realized as the College has 
developed and created new needs for 
specialized facilities. Ultimately the 
Phase II additions to the Athletic 
Centre will be further developed. 

Being adequate is simply not 
good enough. If you want to show 
any sort of leadership at all you 
have to acknowledge that while 
programs and curriculum are 
important, physical spaces also 
require rigorous attention. 

It will take a significant influx 
of new capital to implement all the 
elements of the Strategic Plan. If you 
take the College's leadership role in 
education seriously, you have to be 
willing to spend the money. Good 
teachers, good programs, good 
facilities and the tools to open the 
doors of the College to those with 
limited financial resources are all 
costly. Every day we demonstrate 
our leadership in education. We've 
pioneered new curriculae in the 
IB, we've set new standards for 
providing support services for 
our students and, by any measure, 
we are very good at what we do, 
which is preparing boys for higher 
education and for a full adult life 
and career. 

Summer 2000 

"Skills, Competency and Creativity 

Address to Morning Assembly 
Bernard Gustin ( y 58-'65) 

Five years ago Bernie Gustin C65) starting working with UCC on the vision and ideas that have led to 
creation of the Creativity Centre. He and his family are among the largest supporters whose donations 
have made this centre possible. On the evening of April 12, 2000 Bernie also addressed the Benefactors 
of the Centre at a reception in their honour. 

Good morning gentlemen. Many 
families and friends of UCC have 
made the Creativity Center possible. 
Why have we done this? What are 
we trying to accomplish? 

The arts have been at UCC for 
a long time, but for many years 
they have been on the sidelines, or 
in the sub-basement, so to speak. 
The new Creativity Center is at the 
heart of the school. It represents a 
commitment to put creativity at 
the heart of the UCC experience 
and to give each of you a stronger 
chance than ever before to discover 
and strengthen your creative skills. 

Each of us has one overriding 
purpose on this planet - to be 
everything he can be, to find and 
to bring to the fullest fruition the 
goodness and the genius we each 
have inside. That means dreaming 
big dreams and realizing as many 
of them as possible; being a good 
person, a good friend, and a good 
citizen; and leaving the world a 

better place than you found it. 

Especially in the two hundred 
years since the industrial revolution, 
we have set in motion 
developments that threaten the 
planet seriously. For all our 
supposed progress, pollution 
threatens the earth in many ways. 
In this century alone, politicians 
have led to the slaughter of over 100 
million people. As you know, in 
Kosovo, Zimbabwe, Lebanon, 
Rwanda, Chechnya, and many 
other places, this violence of man 
against man continues unabated. 
For all our intellectual progress, 
discrimination based on religion, 
race or creed remains prevalent in 
much of the world. 

Soon your hands will be on 
the levers of power. The planet 
needs for you to do a better job 
than the generations that came 
before you. You will need to be 
more effective, more capable, and 
more creative than the students 

who preceded you. 

But what can you do now, in 
real, practical terms, here at UCC 
every day, to prepare to play this 
role? I think there are three main 

First, you need to master the 
basic skills - logical thinking, clear 
and powerful writing, math, that 
are at the heart of a UCC education 
and the IB. 

When you leave this school your 
peers will be the smartest, most 
talented, most hard working young 
people everywhere on the planet 
and you want to be as strong as 
you can be to take your place 
among them. That's the real core 
of why your parents are sending 
you here, and why the faculty are 
here to help and support you. This 
may sound obvious, but I'm going 
to repeat it - if you want to come 
out of here truly strong and 
distinctive so that you can have a 
decisively meaningful impact on 
the planet, you must learn to write, 
think, and reason as well as you 
can - and probably far better than 
you imagine. 

You can do it, and it's really 

The second thing you can do is 
to try to understand what makes 
you a unique person - what you 
enjoy, what you seem to be gifted 
at, what you do well in, as well as 
the areas that you're not so strong 
at. Usually, of course, the faculty 
will help identify those areas for 
you. But you need to take 
responsibility for gaining as good 
insights into yourself as you can. 

I'm not just thinking of earning 

Old Times 

good grades and covering the weak 
areas. Very few of individuals can 
be truly outstanding at everything. 
A few people can be successful 
simply as solid all-rounders. But 
what seems to work best for most 
of us is finding out what you enjoy 
and are truly good at, and making 
a special effort to build your 
strengths in that area - whatever it 
is. That way, as your confidence 
grows, your performance will 
improve further, which in turn will 
build more self-confidence, and in 
turn enhanced performance. 

Of course you shouldn't focus 
on just one tiny thing or one 
narrow side of your development. 
But if you try to do everything 
"pretty well," you probably won't 
end up doing any one thing 
strongly enough or distinctively 
enough to have a real edge in an 
increasingly competitive world. 
Again, for most of us the essence 
of success lies in doing one or at 
most a few things much better than 
most other people. So strive to 
find what that thing is for you, and 
then do everything in your power 
to become as excellent in it as you 
can possibly be. 

The great detective Sherlock 
Holmes says at one point, "My 
name is Sherlock Holmes, it is my 
business to know what other 
people don't know." Well, you had 
better know some things - and 
how to do some things - that other 
people don't if you are to 
distinguish yourself in this world. 

The third thing you can do is to 
learn to be as pro-active as you can 
be, as creative as you can be, in 
everything you do. This means in 
everything. Creativity is not limited 
to the arts or music or drama - as 
wonderful an outlet as they can be 
for it. On the sports field, in classics, 
in maths, in history, in every field, 

don't do or accept things just 
because they've always been done 
that way. Use your senses, and try 
to understand the deeper meaning 
of what your senses are telling you. 
Sherlock Holmes said, of lesser 
detectives, "they observe, but they 
do not see." Well, you need to 
observe and to listen, but then get 
behind what you see and hear and 
really figure out what's going on. 
And then you need to decide in 
a creative way how to take that 
surface appearance and the deeper 
meanings that lie behind it, and 
build from them to fashion new 

To sum up, what's needed is a 
combination of strong mastery of 
a few basic skills; a self-confident 
sense of your special gifts and 
talents; and creative, fearless acts 
of imagination. Only through this 
combination will you be able to 
make the leaps of new contribution 
that the planet requires and that 
will lead to your greatest fulfillment 
as a person. 

Now, how does this relate to the 
creativity center? Well, the IB 
curriculum and the faculty will 
help keep you focussed on the 
basics. The creativity center has 
been established to help all of 
you have the greatest possible 
opportunities to develop your 
creativity and imagination. Use the 
center. Work with the faculty and 
with one another. Discover new 
areas - I would bet that you'll find 
that they open new vistas for you 
to express yourself, and to gain 
deeper insight into yourself and 
the world around you. 

Gentlemen, the planet and the 
universe lie before you. They are 
your playgrounds. They are your 
workplace. They are also your 
responsibility. UCC can provide 
the tools - of skills, of unique 
competence, of creativity - that 
you will need to build your futures 
and realize your destinies. But only 
you can take those tools and make 
them your own. 

Seize the day, seize the tools. 

Bemie Gustin was born in Paris to sun'ivors of the French resistance in WW II who 

emigrated to Toronto when he was five. At UCC from 1958 to 1965, he was active in 

sports and clubs at both the Prep and Upper Schools, was a Prefect in Seaton's House,

Address to the Leaving Class of 2000 
Jehad Verjee ('89 -'00) 

I was talking with a friend, who 
told me that the best and worst 
moments of his life occurred within 
the walls of UCC. I feel the same way. 

When thinking about the faculty 
here, only a few words come 
immediately to my mind: guidance, 
knowledge, help, friends. Teachers at 
this school have helped all of 
us through our best and worst 
moments. They have been there since 
the beginning and they are here at 
the end. 

From Geo Jeopardy to Chemistry 
Jeopardy to The Odyssey Jeopardy, 
teachers have all tried to make their 
subjects fun. But we as students, 
whether we acknowledge it or not, do 
find school fun, and this is not 
common among many schools in the 
world. It's not the facility; it's not the 
grounds. Our faculty has made us 
who we are today. 

About eleven years ago, I erased my 
answers on a marked math test and 
accused Mr. McKenna of mis-marking 
my paper. Knowing full well that I was 
trying to cheat, he let me save face in 
front of the class by not disciplining me. 
One of my foremost and most lasting 
lessons was learnt in the first month of 
grade 3 from a teacher that went above 
the rules to do what was right. 

The clubs and activities in which 
we all partake stem from a faculty 
commitment. At Martingrove, they 

cannot have a rugby team because 
no teacher will coach it. This is 
unheard of here. The dedication of 
our faculty to the all around 
education is selfless. Be they as club 
faculty advisors or extended -essay 
advisors, our teachers will always look 
at our good before theirs. 

As I sat in my bed yesterday 
morning staring at the black void in 
my schedule that is first period French 
class, I decide to go back to sleep. I 
know that this decision is made by 
most of us students each morning, 
and some have more willpower than I, 
but those of us that feel that we've 
paid the price of good attendance 
don't mean contempt. There is no 
attendance 'problem'; I hope our 
teachers understand the choices that 
we are mature enough to make, 
something only found in a faculty 
like ours. 

All of our faculty is inspiring. At 
what other school could such a group 
of poets, playwrights, scientists, artists, 
historians and linguists come together 
and devote themselves to others, 
especially students like us. 

It is said that the content of our 
education to this point is worthless. It 
is not what we learn, but HOW we 
learn. Our teachers have taught us to 
learn and taught us to be who we are. 
There is a little bit of every teacher we 
have ever had in all of us. The 
organization skills taught to us by the 
History Department, the creative skills 
from the English Department, the 
analytical skills given to us by the 
Science Department, all parts of us, all 
parts of our education and our lives. 
Skills that will stick with us for the rest 
of our lives are taught here and in the 
Prep. Lessons are learnt fully and 
completely by the most competent 
group of people that I have ever seen. 

Each of us have our moments. Each 
of us remembers specific events which 
make us who we are. We all know the 
time in class where it clicked: this is 
what we love. Be it English, History, 
Science or Computers, we all have 
our niche. The teacher, the moment, 
the fact, are all burned into our 
memory. Be it finding God in Ben 
Okri or seeing the beauty of the C 
major scale, we have found our 
calling, shown to us only through the 
devotion of our faculty. 

After eleven years, all I can 
remember is moments. The 
Foundations project in grade 7, Dipsy 
Doodle in grade 9, grade 1 1 physics 
with Tex Coleman, and the poetry of 
Yeats and Plath. It doesn't matter what 
we learnt, the passion with which it 
was taught is lasting. 

I should end on a personal note. 
The love of learning that I feel is 
directly due to the people here at UCC 
that have invested their time and 
energy into making my life better. 
Their care as teachers, coaches and 
friends has made me who I am. We 
only remember the best and the worst, 
but it's the middle that shapes us. All 
of us owe an unspeakable amount to 
you. On behalf of the 2000 Leaving 
Class, I thank the faculty for teaching 
us all that we know, and for making us 
all that we are. 

Jehad started at Upper Canada 
College in Grade 3 in 1989. This vear, 
while completing his eleventh year, he 
chaired the World Affairs Conference. 
His remarks were presented to his 
colleagues, teachers and staff at the 
Leaving (dass Dinner, sponsored by the 
UCC Association on April 7, 2000. In 
September, Jehad starts his university 
career, entering the fust year of law 
studies at Downing ( '.ollcgc, Cambridge.

Reflections on Options, Breadth and Passion 
- Making Them Work for You" 

Address at The Annual Distribution of Prizes 

Dr. William Leggett, Principal & Vice-Chair, Queens University at Kingston 

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. 
It is a pleasure to be with you, and a 
privilege to have been asked to offer 
some thoughts to you on the splendid 
occasion of your annual prize ceremony. 

Before I go any further I want to 
express my congratulations to the prize 
winners. Coming out on top in an 
environment as rich in accomplishment 
as this is a signal honour. You and 
our colleagues, teachers and families 
should be very proud of what you 
have achieved. 

In his letter of invitation, your 
Principal kindly invited Claire and me 
for lunch at Grant House. And he 
reminded me that Queen's and Upper 
Canada College share elements of this 
wonderful "Grant" name. 

Queen's most famous principal was 
George Monroe Grant. He was the father 
of William "Choppy" Grant who left his 
Queen's faculty position to become your 
Principal in 1917. You have a Grant 
House and we have a Grant Hall! 
Together, we recognize and celebrate a 
father and son who contributed 
immensely to the advancement of 
quality in education in this country. 

While he was a "Prof" at Queen's in 
the early part of this century, Choppy 
strongly supported the notion of 
"balance" in studies. He did this with 
great uncompromising enthusiasm. 
Indeed, he insisted that a student's day 
requires 9 hours of study and 3 hours 
of sports. 

He also asserted that study is more 
important than sports in moulding 
character. As one who put far too much 
emphasis on sports when I was your age, 
I must reluctantly agree. 

If you come to Queen's for your 
university years (and I sincerely hope you 
will) you will find that this "9 and 3" 
formula is still applied. No longer by 
Choppy's fiat, but by the choice of our 
students. In fact we have the largest 
number of intercollegiate athletic teams 
and the highest participation rate in 
intramural and recreational athletics of 
any university in the country. 

We have been less able to control what 
happens during the other 12 hours in the 
day - but we do seek to mould it by 
providing and supporting the richest and 
most diverse array of extracurricular 
programs, clubs and student-led 
initiatives in Canada. And our students 
continually assure me that these activities 
also mould character. 

Much as you do here at UCC, at 
Queen's we encourage and support 
students in their efforts to develop their 
interests, their interpersonal skills, their 
sense of citizenship and leadership, both 
in and beyond the classroom. Our goal is 
really quite simple; it is to provide the 
very best educational experience in 
Canada, and in so doing, to prepare our 
graduates for their roles as true leaders 
and citizens in a global society. 

In reflecting on a topic that might 
both interest you and hopefully also 
cause you to reflect on the choices 
before you, my mind kept returning 
to the comments of several of my 
students about some of my previous 
talks. To be completely honest, there have 
been criticisms. 

They note that: Bill Leggett has a 
tendency to get off the subject ... They 
also acknowledge that he always manages 
to get back on track. I'm likely to do 
both this morning. 

My theme, briefly stated, has three 

First, as you go forward in your lives 
at UCC and beyond, keep your options 
open. Don't allow yourself to be trapped 
by pressures or preconceived notions 
about what your future role in life will 
be. Understand that life is more about 
preparing yourself to exploit opportunity 
than it is about making early and 
final choices. 

Second, strive to gain as much as you 
possibly can from your learning 
environments. It is not sufficient to 
simply master a discipline. You must also 
use these environments to develop your 
interpersonal skills, your ability to 
communicate (which, by the way, 
includes the ability to listen effectively), 
to lead and to follow. 

These vital skills will serve you well 
throughout your life, long after the facts 
and technical skills you learn today are 
forgotten or rendered obsolete by the 
relentless advance of knowledge. 

Third, bring passion to everything 
you do. It will not only enhance your 
interest and accomplishment; it 
will inspire those around you to 
enhance theirs. 

There, I've said it. My speech is 
finished and in less than three minutes. I 
can tell from your faces that many of you 
are delighted! Who needs advice from a 
60-something bald guy anyway! 

However, there are some faces out 
there that suggest they are expecting me 
to say more. And, after all, the College is 
providing lunch! So, drawing on the 
wisdom of a favourite mixed metaphor, 
that one must not drop anchor until one 
is out of the woods, I'll try to get out of 
the woods. 

As I look around the room at the 
many prize winners in the school, I see a 
group of individuals who know about 
making choices. 

You have chosen to participate, to 
compete, and to win. In your studies, 
you have had to make choices about 
understanding the world we live in, 
about which tools to master, about 

Summer 2000 


developing habits of inquiry and healthy 
scepticism, all in preparation for your 
future. You are busy people. 

Let me put you on notice. You will 
discover that education after UCC will 
impose even more choices. It does this 
because there are so many options. You 
have to make trade-offs, to sacrifice in 
one area for benefits in another. Your 
approach to these trade-offs is very 

Let me demonstrate what I mean by 
drawing on the words of someone more 
famous and knowledgeable than I. 

The famous nuclear physicist, Robert 
Oppenheimer, who led an exceptional 
team of scientists in what was, without 
question, the most focused applied 
research project of this century, the 
Manhattan Project, wrote these words to 
his younger brother who seemed to be 
prematurely settling on a particularly 
confining course of study. Oppenheimer 
wrote: "let me urge you to keep an open 
mind: to cultivate an interest in every 
intellectual discipline, and in the non- 
academic excellences of the world, so 
that you may not lose that freshness of 
mind from which alone the life of the 
mind derives, and that your choice, 
whatever it be, of work to do, may be a 
real choice, and one reasonably free." 

I could not agree more. Make choices 
that allow you to keep your options 

This brings me to a sub theme - to 
the point where I may momentarily go 
off track. Research shows that students 
learn better when they are actively 
involved in the process — when they ask 
questions rather than simply memorize 
facts, when they participate in study 
groups, when they write and rewrite 
drafts, when they read and interpret, and 
when they receive frequent feedback 
from their teachers. 

In my view, the best teaching is 
designed to confront students with the 
need to test ideas against facts and 
experience, to find new ways to approach 
and solve difficult problems, to explore 
the meanings hidden behind the text. 
Indeed this activity is the fundamental 
ingredient of original scholarship, of 
individual or group discovery. The very 
best universities adopt this approach. 
They focus more on what we need to 
know and how to develop that 
knowledge than on what we do know. 

They stimulate the mind. 

It should come as no surprise, 
therefore, that this culture of enquiry, 
and this approach to teaching is best 
expressed in universities that are famous 
for their contributions to scholarship. 
Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Princeton, 
Stanford, Queen's (and to be fair, 
Toronto and McGill) are examples. 

The truly great teaching universities of 
the world are also, almost without 
exception, the truly great research 
universities of the world. The fabled 
conflict between teaching and research is 
a myth! Teaching and research are 
symbiotic in nature. 

Having said the evidence is in 
regarding the essential characteristics of a 
great educational environment, it is vital 
that we recognize that a great deal of 
learning can and should go on outside of 
the classroom. 

This brings me back on track, and to 
my second theme. 

It also returns me to the other 12 
hours Choppy Grant was unable to 
control - more options!! 

Great universities create many 
learning opportunities that derive 
not from what they teach, but from 
the environment within which that 
teaching occurs. 

You meet utter strangers on university 
campuses. Social and ethnic 
backgrounds coalesce. People form 
lifetime friendships, they network, and 
together they participate in and celebrate 
the rite of passage to independence and 

There are few organizations more 
successful than universities at 
encouraging and facilitating our crossing 
of social bridges. This diversity spans all 
ages, academic achievement levels, and 
artistic and athletic accomplishments. 

Related to having fun and to this 
socializing function, universities and 
colleges also further the process of 
coming of age, of growing up. For many 
living away from home, often for the first 
time. . . 

You have to cope with new worlds... 
Worlds where no one tells you when to 
get up in the morning or when to cut 
down on junk food. 

Sounds pretty good doesn't it!!! 

From my own perspective, these 
experiences are not only valued, they are 

a vital element of the real academic 
purpose of universities. 

They are not available from courses or 
programs offered over the Internet, they 
cannot be maximized by a commuter 
mindset or lifestyle, or by a part-time 
commitment. Being there and being 
involved is vital if you seek to maximize 
the benefits you derive from the 
university experience. 

Think about it - the truly great 
universities of the world are also 
overwhelmingly residential in character. 
They facilitate and foster being involved, 
growing as an individual, developing 
confidence and perspective. 

This brings me to my third theme. 
The importance of bringing passion to 
your approach in all you do. 

Allow me to briefly illustrate by 
describing how I came to be an 
oceanographer and a university 
principal. This is heavy stuff, so future 
scientists take note! ... 

I have already alluded to my passion 
for athletics. It almost kept me out of 
university. I was saved by my high school 
principal, Maurice Cline, who had a 
different passion - a passion for ensuring 
that those who could succeed did so. He 
forced me to apply myself in a more 
balanced way and opened the door to 
opportunities I could never have 

I began a degree in the humanities . . . 
science was never my strong suit. 
Ultimately, in my last year, I was forced 
to confront the reality that I needed one 
science elective to graduate. Having 
delayed so long, only one course fit my 
schedule, a course in vertebrate zoology. 
I registered. 

The professor, Geoffrey Power, was 
one of those exceptional teachers who 
brought a passion for creative enquiry to 
his course, and a passion for students 
and their interests to his interactions 
with us. By Christmas he had lit my 
scientific fire and by Easter he had 
convinced me that I should pursue a 
career in science. I had imbibed of his 
passion and had developed my own! 

Geoff Power was a fisheries ecologist 
so I became one too - largely because of 
his enthusiasm and mentoring. 

Let me pause here to remind you 
what I said about the importance of 


Old Times 

passion in your life, and of the impact 
that passion can have on the lives of 
others. The passion of Maurice Cline and 
Geoffrey Power changed my life. They 
gave me passion for what I do. 

The rest is relatively straightforward. 
My passion for my science created the 
opportunity to teach and research - first 
at McGill, and now at Queen's. It also 
ensured that I did it well. 

My passion for interacting with 
students and helping them to learn led 
to two outcomes - a highly rewarding 
career as a teacher, and the discovery 
that by assuming administrative 
responsibilities that came my way, I 
could broaden my mentorship, my 
contribution, and the scope of my 
passion for education. 

Let me pause again. Note that none 
of this was highly planned. The 
somewhat unusual breadth of my 
education created opportunities, and 
provided me with an unforeseen 
potential to seize those opportunities as 
they came my way. And the passion that 
others shared with me, and helped me 
develop in myself, fuelled the successes I 
have enjoyed. 

Focus for a moment on that last 
word - enjoyed. Cherished and 

treasured would also suffice. The vital 
message is that success is measured as 
much by the satisfaction you derive 
from what you do, as it is from what it 
is you do. Whatever you do, do it well! 

Let me conclude with a story about 
service to others that I trust will help to 
bring all these elements together: the 
importance of options, of developing 
life skills, and of passion for work and 

It's a fable and if you've heard it 
before, forgive my repeating it and 
please don't give away the punch line. 
There was a busy little ant who worked 
very hard all summer long — carefully 
using all his intellect and physical 
capacity storing away a harvest of 
cookie and cake crumbs and bits of 
bread and caraway seeds. He worked 
like a demon. Nose to the ground — he 
scurried back and forth all day long. 

Did he notice the blue sky or the soft 
blush of a crimson sunset? Did he stop 
to see the dew and the petals of a rose? 

He was too busy rushing back and 
forth filling his larder. 

His neighbour was a merry little 
cricket who sang all day long and into 
the night. He didn't bother with seeds 

or crumbs or cakes — he danced and 
sang -and enjoyed the world, making it 
a cheerful place with all his melodies. 

When winter came the ant was snug 
in his larder — and the cricket was 
shivering in the snow. And because the 
ant resented the fact that the cricket had 
not been industrious, the cricket was 
not welcome in the ant's larder. You 
know where I'm going with this — we 
all know the moral of this story. But to 
be perfectly honest with you, I always 
thought the ant was a jerk! 

Both the ant and the cricket were 
passionate about their activities, but 
balance was missing in how they 
approached their lives and in the 
choices they made. 

I promise I won't get off my topic 
now and add a fourth theme about the 
importance of balance in life. Instead, 
let me get in a short commercial for 
balance and close by saying, if you're a 
natural born ant — open your heart and 
take time in life to smell the roses — and 
if you're a cricket — god bless you. 

Congratulations to all this morning's 
prize winners and thank you for your 
attention and the wonderful hospitality 
that has been shown to Claire and I 
during our stay with you.

1926 Walter Bilbrough 

In the ocean of time, 74 years are 
not even a drip. Yet to 92 year olds, 
they mean a lot. In 1926, we were 
early birds in the 20th century. 
Now we are five known survivors 
who can look forward to seeing 
each other again in the second 
millennium - on earth. Herbie 
Little may be on the golf course 
again in Ottawa this summer. He 
is currently the national president 
for the Canadian Writers' Foundation. 
Bob Schurman is having a rocking 
good time and hopes to still be a 
Canadian citizen in Montreal in the 
21st century. John A. D. Craig and 
I continue planning lunch at the 
R. M.C.I. Since you wanted to know 
what we are up to, the answer is 
not too much; otherwise we would 
not be here. Nevertheless, it's nice 
to remember so much to have been 
up to and to look forward to being 
up to more.

The pace of change continues at 
a furious rate for the class of

199o Sami Moussai & 
Alex St. Louis 

Watch out real world, the UCC 
class of '96 is about to explode 
out of university. Here's a taste of 
what's going on. Al St. Louis and 
Chuck Clark are playing hockey for 
Queen's and have just finished a 
successful season. That's only the 
tip of the "lce"berg, with Benoit 
Morin wearing a big "A" for 
Princeton this season. One of my 
original transitions: to the arts. 
Hugh Eastwood took a term off 
rowing but was still able to sing 
with the Baker's Dozen, one of 
Yale's a cappella groups. Jason 
Yung Chang graduated from 
Concordia Film School after

businessmen never slow down 
either... Matthew Farb spent last

others, will begin work in New York

of money management. Chris Heer

going to grad school next year 
(and I know it's a bunch), good 
luck, the end of the tunnel is not 
so far away. Worthy of special 
note, James Flannery has joined 
the navy in the U.K. Full marks 
for originality and dedication to 
James. Watch for him in an 
aquatic battle near you. Barney 
Williams (technically '95), was 
married in September of '99. 
Congratulations gunner, from 
all of us. 

1997 MikeDryden& 
Chris Pettit 

Liam Price, the student formerly 
known as Will, is studying 
International Security Studies. 
He plans to be across the Pond 
next year (hopefully, London or 
Edinburgh). This semester has 
been really busy, as he was also 
working for Ted Kennedy at the 
US Senate for about 20 hours a 
week. He writes that "it's been 
busy, but interesting." Evan Cappe 
is enthusiastically studying History. 
Steve Villeneuve is studying at 
McGill. Justin Burul is currently 
finishing his third year at Queen's 
University studying Economics. 
Tyler Walker is presently in his 
third year of architecture school 
after completing a co-op work term 
in London, England. Brett Hendrie 
is currently Student Body President 
of his college at U of T, where he 
is entering the final year of a Film 
Studies program. Paul Budovitch 
is hoping to graduate from McGill 
University in 2001 with a joint 
honors degree in Economics and 
Finance. Chat Ortved is an 
expatriate - and still unable to flee 
the long arm of the Association 
Office, death, taxes and UCC. 

Jackson Armstrong is enjoying a 
one-year exchange from Queen's 
to the University of Edinburgh, 
and is getting some travel in on 
the side. Enrico Diano is currently 
completing his third year in 
Mechanical Engineering at 
U of T and will soon begin work 
at Celestica for a sixteen-month 
co-op term. After spending a year 
at Neuchatel Junior College in 
Switzerland, David Brebner was 
accepted to University of Western 
Ontario and later was successful in 
applying to the Richard Ivey School 
of Business at UWO. Recently, 
he has been elected the Vice 
President of Finance for the 
University Students' Council, which 
is a full time position and results 
in him essentially taking a year off. 
Michael Derzko is splitting his time 
between representing the student 
viewpoint in the committees and 
boards of the Governing Council 
of the University of Toronto, and 
studying for a double major in 
Economics and Physics. Michael 
Dnnkwater is enjoying a challenging 
year at the Ivey Business School 
at Western. He is looking forward 
to studying Spanish in Mexico this 
summer. Others at Ivey are Cam 
Macniven, Ken Thompson, and 
Steve Scarrow. Ken Thompson got 
offered the job of mayor of St. 
Thomas, Ontario, but turned it 
down. John Salloum is spending 
far too much time for his own 
good in a basement newsroom 
as Editor-in-Chief of The McGill 
Tribune. Tommy Mo is having an 
awesome time in Guelph, away 
from the usual crowd, and 
experiencing things that high 
school could never have offered 
him. Jonathan Rosemberg is very 
happy to be at McGill University 
and is even happier that he only 
has one year left to graduation, 
when he will go back to Venezuela 
and, once again enjoy the 
wonderful tropical weather. Andrew 
Turnbull is in economics at 
Queen's where he plays on the 
ultimate frisbee team. He is 
working his third summer with 
Goldman, Sachs & Co. Aleks 
Ejsmont is currently completing 
his junior year at Cornell where he 
is studying Political Science and 
Philosophy. He is in the process 
of deciding between pursuing law 
school or chef school in France 
after graduation. Last summer 

Aleks was a tour leader and guide 
for a European tour company 
based in New York. John Medland 
somehow worked it so that he is 
not enrolled in any academic 
classes at Queen's. All he is doing 
is playing rugby for the school. 
Anthony Chan will be entering his 
senior year at Cornell University 
next year. After interning with CS 
First Boston last summer, he is 
eager to re-enter the world of 
investment banking when he joins 
Merrill Lynch in NYC this year. 
Dean Tzembelecos is President 
of the McGill chapter of the Kappa 
Alpha fraternity. Ben Strong is 
studying at McGill. He has been 
recognized for having the best 
head of hair in the entire student 
body. Matt Denton is studying 
Finance at Queen's. Jamie Spratt 
might not be considered an official 
member of the class of 1997, but 
he is in our hearts. He has been 
studying at McGill for the past 
two semesters and will return to 
Queen's next fall for his final year. 
Mark Gardiner spent the first 
semester of his third year studying 
in Spain. Apparently he beat up 
some bulls and is now back out 
east at Dalhousie. He spends a 
lot of time running for the cross- 
country team. Look for him to 
make the National Championships 
next year. Geoff Pertsch has a 
perfect record as a starting pitcher 
for the McGill baseball team - not 
including his freshman year. He is 
also studying mathematics and 
computers. Andre Picher has taken 
his third year to study abroad. He 
says he is studying at a school in 
France, but a more likely story is 
that he is roaming Europe; a 
drifter so to speak -just finding 
a couch here and a couch there. 
Chris Pettit is studying in the 
faculty of education at McGill. He 
spends most of his time roaming 
the city looking for a place that is 
showing the Leaf game. Mark 
Vesley is studying engineering 
at U of T. 

1998 Mike Castaldo & 
Jeff Hill 

Jeff Hill and Josh Aaronson 
continue their undergraduate work 
at Carleton College in Northfield, 
MN. Both are pursuing degrees 
in sociology and anthropology 
with Josh concentrating in 

Environmental and Technology 
Studies and Jeff in Education. This 
fall both will study off-campus, Jeff 
in Buenos Aires and Josh in 
Salamanca, Spain. Chris Burkett, 
David Shaw, Shawn Zeytinoglu, 
Pat Gossage, and Jordan Caspari 
remain closely linked to UCC: 
they live in the same house at 
Queen's. Dave is hard at work on 
a Commerce degree, while Chris, 
Shawn, and Pat pursue Arts 
degrees. Jordan is the lone 
science major, proving that 
ANYTHING is possible... David 
Busch enjoyed a successful, albeit 
shortened hockey season in his 
sophomore year at UNH. Dave 
recently suffered a broken leg, 
much to the chagrin of his team, 
for whom Dave had become a 
major contributor. Sam Finkleman 
and Al "Granny" Gransden share 
an apartment in Halifax, while 
continuing their studies at King's 
College. This summer Al hopes 
to find work as an ore worker in 
Greenland!... Good luck! Next fall 
Sam will attend McGill as a 
transfer student. Martin Green 
reports that he did a lot of 
classified work for the Government 
Caucus Office, assisting the 
Executive Director of Government 
Members Services. He also 
managed to find some spare time 
to assist the Lieutenant Governor 
in setting up a website for her 
Foundation. Martin was also 
honoured last summer by being 
appointed the youngest Aide de 
Camp to the Lieutenant Governor. 
Sunir Chandaria and Matt 
Lenczner are both playing varsity 
hockey for Oxford.
